Hello, I’m James Butcher. I’ve spent the past 20 years working at two of the most influential scientific publishers: first as Executive Editor at The Lancet and then as the leader of the Nature journals.
I now help editors and publishing professionals create impactful scholarly journals through consulting, coaching, and speaking.
Scholarly publishing is changing rapidly, which makes the job of being an editor (and a publisher) increasingly challenging. Journalology is here to help.
Learn how to create impactful journals
Journalology aims to help editors and publishing professionals create impactful journals in three ways:
- Consulting. I provide consultancy services with Clarke & Esposito, one of the leading strategy consultancies serving professional and scholarly publishers.
- Coaching. Editorial success does not need to be a black box. Learn how to create impactful journals by joining the coaching programme.
- Speaking. Senior managers need to re-energise, inspire and train their journal teams. I can provide event attendees with a unique perspective, helping editors to adapt to a rapidly changing external environment.
